I was just beginning the process of preparing my Hoodies novel for Amazon when I decided to take the advice of Tina F, a real literary agent who has a Shelfari page called: Help for Writers. She has always said that any writer should at least try for an agent or publishing company before self-publishing, so that's what I've done. I've sent off a proposal to an agent. I firmly believe that my novel is good enough to publish, so I'm going to discover if anyone else thinks the same.
I know that I should have the courage of my convictions but maybe it's just vanity.
